Eeeeeeeek! BOO!

The chill in the air...the crisp, cool breeze..................okay, it's only in the high 60°s-70°s for part of the day, but I'll take that over the 90°s we had up until last week.............so just play along, 'kay?

So........I decided to pull out all the Halloween decorations and start working on a little tablescape and some fun vignettes throughout the house.

This fun little "village" is now comfortably resting on our dining room table.

My favorite part may just be the adorable silhouettes all around the cake plate. Of course this sweet picture from last year just melts my heart! Look how little Hudson was!!! Above the village I strung some pumpkin doilies on some leftover halloween ribbon for a little unexpected detail... ...and doesn't it look cute with that lightbulb out?? ;)

The framed drawing is actually a rainbow Grace drew and colored during her last art class with Mrs. Laura. She actually deemed it her "Underwater World" and added some fishes (the bubbles on the left). But I thought the colors were too perfect not to add it here with all the halloween decor, so we just placed a friendly spider in front and voila! I'm pretty crazy about candy corn so I had to pull out my favorite glass candy corns and scatter them throughout. Grace & I had fun putting together this little garland. She quickly informed me the spiders were Mama, Daddy, Grace, Hudson, & Jaxon, our dog ;) And because I just can't help myself...the candy corns ended up here as well! Grace's favorite thing...this little vintage black cat hidden among the branches in the spooky tree! Hudson's favorite - I'm guessing since he keeps looking up at them and pointing - are the pumpkins floating from the chandelier! So there you have it.
A little Halloween booscape to brighten your day. Hope you have a Spooktacular Day!
